INTERNATIONAL WEEK—ENGLAND

I spent the day with the pigeons, on a bench in Trafalgar Square, my bag of belongings huddled to my chest in case someone thought of taking them, and a pile of breadcrumbs at my feet. I let the pigeons congregate around me … Eventually a local warden came up to me and said , “Sir, we ask people not to feed the pigeons,” with such an expression of civic determination that I pretense not to understand English. Instead, I listed my way through various “eh?” sounds until, having exhausted his two words of French and three of Spanish, he concluded that since I was neither nationality, I wasn’t worth the bother.  Kate Griffin
